Katuchat 'Hypertension'

Tomorrow, April 27, Roche Musique will release French newcomer Katuchat's latest EP, Anaesthesia.

Over five engrossing and emotionally complex tracks, Katuchat transcribes his daily struggle dealing with an incurable disease from an early age—the release's artwork, too, wears this struggle, as the scar "represents the way I had to learn to live with my illness by assuming the traces left externally and internally," he says. Katuchat is influenced by artists such as Aphex Twin, Arca, and Shlohmo, which can be heard in the mind-bending sound design, delicate rhythms, and haunting atmospheres on Anaesthesia. The EP represents "a very personal musical project to express the acceptance of this disease, the consent to never really heal and the importance of keeping your head up."

In support of the EP, Katuchat has offered up "Hypertension" as today's XLR8R download, available via WeTransfer below, along with a stream of the EP.
